Favorite Pinball Games

These were pinball machines that I remember playing as a child.  One of the places I fondly remember playing these games was a farmers market in Gilbertsville PA called Zerns Farmers Market.   A lot of my friends and myself included had and still have parents who were merchants in the Zerns Market or spent a lot of time at the auctions and / or shopping there.  Back in the 70's and 80's when I was sinking a lot of quarters into all sorts of games, Zerns had a game room near Ricks Auction that was lined with the previous decades pinball machines.  There must have been at least 30 machines at any one time and they were periodically replacing machines with different models.  So over the years myself and a few friends had plenty of time to get familiar with some great games of the time as we spent our Friday night and all day Saturday at "the sale" or the Gilbertsville Sale as many of all call it.  One of my good friends, Carl, was just as much of an arcade junkie as I was.  I can remember we had spent countless hours and quarters on these games. 


William Triple Action

My God, I remember this one in a game room in the Downingtown farmers Market, years again.  The market had burned down when I was 7 years old so I was just about too young to play pinball back then. 

Williams 1975 Toledo

I can remember right where this one sat in the Zerns game room.  Back in the corner behind the booth where "Pop's" made change for all the "sale rats".

Playball D. Gottlieb & Co., April 1971


4 flippers and a spinning gate in the middle.  Trigger that gate to rack up 1000 points per revolution rather than the typical 100 point per ... send it up the middle at a high rate of speed and DING, DING, DING, DING, CRACK!  More games!  2 quarters for two players and we'd waste an hour until we got tired of it.  Here kid, you want some free games?

One word Carl .... Yvonne!!
